View Full Version : Final Fantasy VIII Gathering

12-10-2004, 12:57 AM
Hello everyone. 2005 will be my first year attending Fanime up in San Jose, and I will be bringing along my Irvine Kinneas (newly updated and reconstructed for the 2005 convention season). I was wondering if there were going to be any other Final Fantasy VIII cosplayers at Fanime who would be interested in organizing a Final Fantasy VIII gathering meet-up. I know this is a bit early, but you know what they say: better to plan early! If you are interested, please post here. Thanks!

you make an awesome sephy i cosplay as sephy as well! pretty cool to have 2 good sephys! im going to be the typical ff7 sephy and the final battle shirtless sephy! but my masumune is a bit on the short side but its ok id rather not carry anything that long for hours on end hitting everything! ouch in the dealers room too! you make a really good sephy too! we good sephys need to stick together! muahah

I can't bring my Sephiroth on a plane, lol. But thank you for the lovely comment. Very appreciative ^_^. I don't really think I can get passed security with a 6-foot masamune that does not break in halves. XD

That's why I'm bringing Irvine to Fanime. ^^ And that's why I was wondering if there were any other Fanime FFVIII cosplayers around.

12-12-2004, 11:17 AM
Selphieeeeeee! XD It'll be great to see you again! ^_^ Are you going to have your groupie in Rinoa and Seifer gear again, too?

12-12-2004, 11:01 PM

Selphieeeeeee! XD It'll be great to see you again! ^_^ Are you going to have your groupie in Rinoa and Seifer gear again, too?

Perhaps! I dunno yet. xD I'm sure people will be in some kind of FF8 gear, so yes. I'll tell people to bring the FF8-ness to the con. xD

Yay Rosie!! Hurray for Siren!!! :D You will teh shinyness!! :D *Selphie pretends to summon Siren* :X

Hmm I was thinking about doing Quistis earlier...but I haven't started it....so I could try to make it before then...could be a uber challange though. But yeah all I can say is I'll try...>.<

12-14-2004, 04:08 PM
Ooohh, That'd be booyaka-awesome if you did Quisty, Jopko!! ^^

12-14-2004, 06:40 PM
I'd probably be Laguna was it not for me being Testament this year

12-15-2004, 06:01 PM
Count me in!! XD Go fanime a go go!

12-15-2004, 07:05 PM
i too will probably be bringing Selphie, and maybe Rinoa. *crosses fingers* i also am hoping to convince my friend to go and to cosplay from 8, and she's looking at quistis, so hopefully!

12-15-2004, 08:57 PM
Wow, a lot of replies since I last checked! (Blame the college finals...). I hope to see all of you there! Shall I make a listing for everyone?

12-18-2004, 02:21 PM
Rinoa here! *waves*

01-09-2005, 09:56 PM
I plan on going... it would be my first fanime, too. So if it's for sure...

Rinoa (for sure)
Selphie Balamb uniform [hopefully... most likely I will be her for a gathering over Rinoa]

01-10-2005, 12:00 AM
*waves to Chaipnai* It'll be my first Fanime too, first NorCal con for that matter. Hope to see you there!

01-10-2005, 12:42 AM
*waves back to Anele*
Same to that. Haha, but first ALA, right : )

01-10-2005, 12:52 PM
Right right. :) 18 more days to that, I believe. Let's hope this weather clears up -_-.

Back to FFVIII news, I guess I could start a character listing. ^_^

01-18-2005, 01:36 AM
i will be going as irvine and this will be my first ff cosplay.

01-18-2005, 09:54 PM
im going as sephiroth but can i have some opinions?

i wanna either go as final final stage sephiroth shirtless, or regular, or my gunner sephiroth if i can get it done.

which one?

01-18-2005, 11:41 PM
If I choose to get off my lazy butt and do some work, I'll hopefully have Rinoa done by then and make my boyfriend be my Squall, lol.

01-20-2005, 12:11 AM
You better be there as Rinoa and Squall! XD I've been looking forward to it ever since you told me several months ago of your plans. XD

02-05-2005, 01:17 PM
hehe, you guys are gonna have a Raijin for this gathering! XD

02-05-2005, 04:53 PM
I might be able to pull off Siren by Fanime *is too lazy xD* and my friend is gonna be a Garden Student :D ^_^

02-09-2005, 03:54 PM
You guys interested in having a Tonberry King around??? If I can get my Tonberry King back up to speed, I'm game...IF, though...

02-23-2005, 01:45 AM
BSaphire and I would like to know what day time and such are you guys planing to hold this gathering at???? Please tell one of us. This way we can put it down on the Fanime list of gatherings on the cosplay and fanime boards.

03-02-2005, 04:22 PM
I went to Fanime last year as rinoa. I might be rinoa again this year cause my costume wasn't completed. I dunno though. YuffieK's idea about being Siren is so freakin awesome! But ya! When are you guys planning to meet for the Final Fantasy VIII gathering?

04-13-2005, 12:50 PM
Bad news: unfortunately, due to some difficulties and change of plans, I will not be attending Fanime this year. Though, I will still update the gathering's character list (if you guys decide to have one in the first post of the thread) if you'd like; that's not a problem; it's the least I can do. Sorry about this... maybe I'll give it another try next year.

Anele, thats too bad!! This is going to be my Second Fanime and I totally recomend it to you when you get a chance!

Also, it is confirmed that I will deffinitely be bringing Rinoa with me, and if the wig gets here in time, I'll bring Selphie again (the last con I wore Selphie at, the wig made it to the con fine, i wore the costume, then we packed everything the last day into the back of the truck but when we got home after con, the wig was gone, along with five wig heads. So I have to make a new Selphie wig)

My friend I spoke of before has decided on Irvine instead of Quistis, and we hope to bring another friend who is cosplaying Squall.

I'm not certain whether I'll be Selphie or Rinoa for the gathering, depends on how many of each versus the other there is, probably.

YuffieK, it would be awesome to see a Siren cosplayer!!!!! I hope you can get it done!

I might go as Selphie too. but uhh... its kind of intiminating seeing all of you- and how you all know each other already. 0_0;; *runs off*

Don't run off. ^^ I sorta feel the same way, but it will be fun b/c they will probably be ecstatic no matter who comes for the gathering. :D

Selphie's wig has not arrived yet, so it looks as though I will be Rinoa for the gathering.

This of course brings me to my nexy question: Have we picked a day/time/place? I read through the thread and couldnt find anything... The general FF gathering is Saturday at 5pm, at the founttains in the front, so far it doesnt look like there's any gatherings at 6pm that day, so I think it would make sense to have the FF8 gathering right after the gen FF gathering, since most people will already be in their costumes.

So....does Saturday at 6pm (or whenever the gen FF gathering breaks up) at the fountains sound good to everyone? if not, feel free to suggest another time.... I'm just trying to plan my costumes..

05-25-2005, 02:52 PM
I think Saturday at six will be okay... :)

05-25-2005, 04:29 PM
awesome! we should be sure to tell all FF8 people in case they are not on the boards :)

05-25-2005, 04:44 PM
Ye GADS!!! Another FF gathering??? schweet...what's the where and when???

05-25-2005, 06:22 PM
...Like it says three posts earlier, Saturday, 6pm, at the fountains in front.

05-27-2005, 03:52 AM
Wahooo! My little sis might come as Selphie... or Rinoa.. Not sure yet. xD I made her her OWN Selphie costume since she can't fit in mine. She's too little :3. We'll see. (She has the perfect hair for Rinoa but would rather be Selphie, wtf?! :D)

See you all tomorrow, hopefully!!!! *prance*
